SuperHomes Ireland represented at Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action
Our Programme Manager, Declan Daly and Customer Manager, David Flannery attended the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action on July 10th to discuss housing and retrofitting.
“Not only does deep renovation improve the long-term health of occupants, decrease energy costs and reduce carbon emissions, it produces high quality job opportunities. The deep renovation of one home supports an average of one job per year in terms of direct, indirect and induced jobs. The SEAI deep retrofit pilot programme has demonstrated that there is an appetite in the industry, yet major skills shortages are already restricting delivery of retrofit projects and driving up costs. Addressing this shortage of skills will be key to maintaining a high-quality retrofit product that produces positive connotations in the public mind, thereby encouraging uptake.”
